An interpretive naturalist, writer, educator and reptile specialist from Bend, Oregon, Alan St. John has crafted a richly photographed guide to the reptiles, snakes and turtles found in the Pacific Northwest. Each of the book’s 44 accounts features photographs of the animal, as well as range maps and notes on identification, variation, distribution, habitat, behavior and similar species. The guide also has a strongly personal and accessible quality through St. John’s field notes of his own encounters with each of the featured species.
